Back in 2016, Drake shocked the world when he took to the MTV VMA stage to confess his love for the popstar whilst giving her the MTV Video Vanguard award.
"She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old," he said during the ceremony. "She’s one of my best friends in the world."
However, Rihanna later said that she and Drake were no longer friends in an interview with Vogue in 2018.
"We're not friends right now, but we're also not enemies," she stated. "It is what it is," says the narrator. Drake appears to have responded by unfollowing her on Instagram.
Rihanna and Drake reportedly had an on-off relationship between 2009-2016. The pair went on their first date after her split with Chris Brown.
In May 2014, RiRi was spotted holding hands with Drake while they were in London. In 2016, they dropped their track "Work" and gave the steamiest performances when performing the track, reigniting dating rumours.
However, Rihanna was spotted at the rapper's 33rd birthday party in October 2019.
